THE FIVE STEP PLAN TO HEALTHY HAIR!

When hair is so damaged that it snaps or splits that dramatically, you need to take steps to save it:

1. LAY OFF THE CHEMICALS
Even the strongest hair can't withstand a full-on assault of peroxide and straigthtening solution. Talk to your stylist or colorist about how to give it a rest for at least three months (it may requre a different cut or daily routine to camouflage routes or unwanted waves).

2. SHAMPOO GENTLY
Hair that is weak or damaged need a moisturising shampoo. Wash as infrequently as possible, and unless hair is filthy there is no need to scrub hard-just rub shampoo into the scalp, and let the runoff clean the ends.


3.  DO NOT STINT ON CONDITIONER
Those weekly deep treatments some consider a luxury are now a necessity for you. Consider slathering the on every other daybefore shampooing (to fill in cracks), then following the wash with a regular rinse-out formula.


4. PROTECT YOURSELF
If you cannot lay off the blow-dryer completely, at least minimize further damage. Coat strands with a protective styling product, wait until hair is mostly dry (so you spend less time under nozzle), use the warm setting instead of hot, keep the dryer six inches from the head, and do not point it in one area for too long. If you insist on flatironing , coat hair first witth a leave-in conditioner or silicone-based product. 


5. STAY OUT OF THE SUN
UV rays dry out hair and rui its color. Before going outside, douse your hair with a leave-in sunscreen treatment-or better yet, wear a hat.
